Save Your Tooth Month

As a part of our Worth Saving initiative, we have devoted the entire month of May to celebrate saving natural teeth – and to recognize the superheroes of saving teeth who make that possible: endodontists! As an AAE member, you play an important part in spreading the word about saving teeth.

AAE officially begins its annual Save Your Tooth Month recognition on May 1. Get ready for social media celebrations, media moments and a surprise or two! Those who wish to participate via social media are encouraged to use the hashtag #sytm2024. Our legion of superheroes continues to grow stronger, celebrating saving teeth with their amazing content which can be viewed on their practice’s social media accounts and AAE social media properties! Be sure to join in, to make May 2024 one of the most memorable Save Your Tooth Months yet!

The manufacturers of the GentleWave® System is a proud and exclusive sponsor of Save Your Tooth Month. The GentleWave System, an innovative technology platform designed to treat tooth decay by cleaning and disinfecting the microscopic spaces within teeth without the need to remove tooth structure. The system utilizes a proprietary mechanism of action, which combines procedure fluid optimization, broad-spectrum acoustic energy and advanced fluid dynamics, to debride and disinfect deep regions of the complex root canal system in a less invasive procedure that preserves tooth structure. The clinical benefits of the GentleWave System when compared to conventional methods of root canal therapy include improved clinical outcomes, such as superior cleaning that is independent of root canal complexity and tooth anatomy, high and rapid rates of healing and minimal to no post-operative pain. In addition, the GentleWave System can improve the workflow and economics of dental practices.
